Waynesboro Basketball Association (WBA)

In 2009 it was decided that the WBA had a such a good inaugural season that it would expand to not only promote youth team but would encompass the Middle School and High School boys teams as well. In October 2014, the girls booster club merged into the WBA as well.  The primary purpose of the WBA is to promote the development of athletic and leadership skills of the most promising and committed basketball players attending a school in the Waynesboro Area School District. This will be accomplished by stressing good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty and respect for authority. A secondary but as important purpose will be to set a direction of how to go about winning that will eventually be fully executed at the middle school and more importantly high school level. It is not the purpose of this association to stress winning and losing at the youth level, but what steps and skills are needed in order to accomplish the ultimate goal of this association which is success, winning, at the high school level. Direction of the program will be set in conjunction with the high school program and may be dictated and/or changed by the high school varsity head coach.
